JOHN J. HUNT April 21, 1925 - March 23, 2013 We sadly announce the passing of our patriarch, John Hunt. Surrounded by the love of family, Dad passed peacefully on March 23, 2013 in Mississauga. Born in County Mayo, Ireland, John was a proud Irish-Canadian. He is reunited with his beloved wife, Mary "O'Malley" (deceased 1995). Loving and deeply loved father to daughter Eileen (Dr. Michael Corbett) and sons: Sean, Tom (Lucy), Stephen (Laurel), Jim (Kathi) and Tony (Nadine). He was cherished by grandchildren: Julianna, Lisa, Matthew, Kevin, Brendan, Sean, John Jr., Katie, Liam and Mary. His life force will extend to his great-grandchildren and generations to come. John will be lovingly remembered by sisters Maureen and Noreen and joins his five brothers. Many nieces and nephews have fond memories of "Uncle Johnnie".
